Re: sinclair Inn
I wanted to add a bit to the impressions of the Nova Scotia Sinclair Inn.
When I visited this site in 1997 my family of Sinclairs were treated as
honoured visitors and given a bit of the inside tour. The Inn is found in
Annapolis in the South Western part of the Province in a villiage that is
being largely restored. Of special interest is that the Inn was not finished
but under construction so that one could see the construction and design
clearly. Of more general and universal interest was the Masonic ties in
early Nova Scotia. Definitely worth a visit. As cousin Rory suggests it is
known on the tourist circles in Nova Scotia. Neil Toronto PEI Argyll
